However, there’s a new study that says that if that’s the case, you’re doing life wrong. According to a ph.D student at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, having a cup of coffee first thing in the morning is the least effective thing you can do to wake yourself up.

Turns out the stress-hormone called cortisol is released between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. to make us feel the need to get up and get moving. So, if you drink caffeine that early in the morning, it does very little to your body, because the cortisol inside you already beat it to the punch.

Not only that, but drinking coffee at this time also means that your body will build up a tolerance to caffeine and its effects so soon you’ll be needing more caffeine to get the same effect you did when you first tried it.
